11 Benefits of Customizing ARIS for Your Organization


ARIS (Architecture of Integrated Information Systems) is an approach to enterprise modelling. It offers methods for analysing processes and taking a holistic view of process design, management, workflow, and application processing.  The ARIS concept is the foundation  for  the ARIS Toolset software system that supports the modelling (ARIS)

The ARIS Design tool has become widely popular as a powerful business-process modelling tool. One reason for the suite’s popularity is its configurability to suit individual business’s requirements’s requirements and environments. The evaluation module includes the ability to implement custom reporting and scripting.

The ARIS toolset (referred to hereafter as ARIS) is one of the leading tools for Business Process Management, produced and supported by the vendor Software AG.

There are many features of ARIS in the Evaluation section. It is comprehensive and includes reporting, macros, transformations, semantic checks, and queries.

Business Process Modeling (BPm) is the activity of representing the processes of an enterprise so that the current ones may be analysed and improved.

Enterprise modelling is the abstract representation, description and definition of the structure, processes, information, and resources of an identifiable business, government body, or other large organisation (Enterprise Modeling).

BPm and Enterprise modeling are typically performed by business analysts and managers seeking to improve process efficiency and quality. The need to model a business process to provide improvements through information technology is a common driver.

As a data repository, the re-use and relationships between data makes ARIS more than just a sophisticated graphic tool. There is no point having all the data collected in one place if it can’t be outputted into formats that the business can benefit from. Also, there is no use collecting data if it is not reliable and holds the integrity of the data.

Benefits of Customizing ARIS Configuration / Conventions

A powerful part of ARIS is the ability to customise the conventions to suit the business’ requirements by changing the method, filters and templates. ARIS provides a set of standard reports, but these are configured to the typical ARIS configuration with SAG formatting and branding. The flexibility of ARIS is that it provides an inbuilt compiler with the Code View of the Reports module to write custom ARIS reports based on an ARIS JavaScript derivative. User-defined reporting will use the ARIS data specifically as required by the business.

  1. Uniform reporting based on custom configuration/conventions
  2. Corporate branding/custom layouts and formatting as per business communications protocols
  3. Import/update ARIS data quickly and in bulk to reduce repetitive modelling
  4. Increase data integrity by using custom scripts to evaluate and analyse the data
  5. Quality assuranceeasier quality checking, ensuring the process to ‘model’ is adhered to by the modellers (e.g. ensure all VACD functions have assigned EPCs)
  6. Include non-ARIS business experts via distribution of reports as files for review outside ARIS
  7. Automatic & Scheduled reporting event triggered scripts (e.g. triggered when a model is saved) or time triggered scripts (e.g. triggered at midnight every night)
  8. Consistent and uniform modelling via import scripts (e.g. FAD creator with custom layout)
  9. Business reportingshows data in report formats in one file rather than multiple models for those who prefer less visual representations
  10. Statisticsshows data in spreadsheets and tables
  11. Graphical reporting – shows the models/objects as graphics

How to Present Business Process Models to Stakeholders

Has an audience member ever interrupted in the middle of a presentation about process analysis to ask, “Can you show us the process models in a simple PowerPoint slide?” – or, ”I don’t want to look at the green and purple boxes, just show me the flow!” Perhaps you then felt that you had wasted some of your efforts in modelling the process with too much detail or in the wrong way. Embarrassed and demoralised, you must have wondered how else could these models be presented. Well, you are not alone! This is a common dilemma when there is a need to present process models to a variety of audiences. There is both art and science in presenting the right level of process detail to the right group of stakeholders, especially if they are not familiar with the process modelling language. Effective presentation is even more critical in larger and complex end-to-end process improvement work and in new automated business model implementations. You may need to use multiple model types to describe the same business processes to various audiences. Hence, it is very important to understand who the stakeholders are and what they would like to see before your audience with them. This article proposes an approach to the effective presentation of business process models based on three key elements: understand, organise, and communicate.

What Are The Most Important Questions In Business Process Management?

She who dies with the most answers wins. We seek the truth. We want to know the answers. Paul Harmon started me thinking recently when he invited members of the BPTrends Discussion group on LinkedIn to “describe the purpose of Business Process Management in 160 characters, including spaces and punctuation.” Not easy to do – have a go at it yourself. It felt like I was crafting The Ultimate BPM Answer, which, of course, begged The Ultimate BPM Question. That got me thinking that The Ultimate BPM Problem is that we have plenty of answers and not enough questions. So put all the answers aside for a moment and help me to work out what are the most important questions in Business Process Management?
